That's tricky. How do you get "whole memory of process". The use case I have 
here is DSP processor with 3 memory ranges -- one at 0x00000000, another at
0x80000000 and yet another at 0xC0000000. So there's no single continuous 
region of memory. And some of those memory ranges is 64M -- might be not so
good to show that much. And for orginary PC, memory range can be even larger.
